Various ArtistsVarious Artists - Party Fun With Recorders Volume One [csr004] (2004)

something has gone horribly wrong 8-p
Prefer flash? · Embed · Questions/Feedback?

Home Recordings. Children singing, screaming and storytelling.

All recordings are sourced from cassette tapes found in thrift stores and junk shops, tapes dubbed for us (from two of the kids featured here) and one tape was even found in a gutter! The only exception being the last track on this recording, by Grandpa Norm, singing to his grandson and we thought it fit quite nice on this compilation of home cassette recordings.

Remember when you were a kid? Did you have a recorder? Even if you never held a microphone to your mouth and screamed making funny faces, I'm sure you can recall a time when you jumped around like a silly little monkey hooting and hollering. Maybe you still do! We hope so.

Little is known on the background of these recordings. Estimated recording dates are from the early 1970's to the mid 1990's.

Check out more information about this album on it's Comfort Stand release page.

Simply DEVASTATING collection of tape recordings of mostly children speaking, screaming, singing into the tape recorder. This brought back a flood of memories because, of course, I used to do the same thing (Blush I still do) The singing here is great, but what I really love is the aside comments the kids make, like after Justin sings 'ROck And Roll Boy' he says, out of the blue, "I love you mommy!" or how Tanya reflects a while after her and her brother sing Magic Penny.... The adults chime in once or twice to sing along with the kids, or, in the case of the simply dreadful 'For Aidan', A guy is alone with his piano and taperecorder, and proceeds to record every kids song ever made.
This is the kind of thing I love, and I hope the makers keep their promise and release another volume!!!

Comfort Stand is a very nice designed netlabel with interesting releases. This idea of assembling childhood recordings is sweet and conceptual, but it's very hard to listen to that release in a row. But I think it's not the intention.
